    Go to a dealer would be a good start, ask if they have a VXR test car available, show them your driving license and see what they say. Simple yes or no really.

    Or phone them and ask - that would be easier !

    i had a similar experience upon buying a first car at 21 - i had the money but found it difficult for the dealers to take me seriously - in the end one garage did and that person got my cash - if your there seriously to buy one they should let you - but they may think your a test pilot/tyre kicker. if your serious about buying one go back 2 or 3 times to show how interested you are and they will get the message that "maybe this guy is serious"

    my policy only allows people of 25 and over to drive my car and the dealer policies may be the same

    You should be able to drive anything within reason at a dealership.

    If they can see a sale might happen, then its routine to get you in the car.
    In theory, how can you drive a car you havent test driven?

    Well maybe they should read the "instructions" and learn how to adjust the seat

    Well...unless your male and don't do "instructions" like myself and only find the level adjustment after having the car for a year

    i think he means the pedals are too close to eachother, not too close to the seat
